Postdoctoral Researcher, Genomics of Language Skills
A postdoctoral position (2 years, potential extension to 3 years) on Genomics of Language Skills is available at the Language and Genetics Department of the Max Planck Institute, Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The department is led by Simon Fisher, co-discoverer of FOXP2, the first gene to be implicated in a speech and language disorder. Our work identifies genetic loci that are important for language, literacy and social communication, using them as windows into neural pathways and evolutionary foundations. We carry out interdisciplinary research at multiple levels, including next-generation DNA sequencing of relevant disorders, genome-wide association screens of language-related skills, molecular biology investigations in neuronal cell mo
